Using the CEREC system, your dentist can provide you with custom-made crowns and bridges in a single visit. Crowns and bridges are dental restorations that can protect, support, and replace damaged, weakened, and missing teeth. Traditionally, being fit for and receiving crowns and bridges has required at least two appointments often separated by several weeks.

Dental crowns can be better options than large fillings where a lot of tooth structure has been lost, and ideal options to protect a weak tooth from fracturing. Crowns are also effective restorations for fractured teeth, surrounding and encasing a badly discoloured or misshapen tooth, completing a dental implant, anchoring a bridge, or reinforcing and protecting a tooth that has undergone root canal therapy.
It is very important to replace missing or lost teeth in some way. After teeth are lost or extracted, remaining natural teeth will gradually and naturally migrate toward the space left behind as if to fill it. This unintended and unnatural shifting can have negative effects on the alignment of your teeth and bite. Bridges anchored to healthy teeth on either side of a multi-tooth gap can hold replacement teeth called pontics in place. That will not only restore your full dental function but will also prevent the consequences of unintended shifting of your remaining teeth.
Until the development of the CEREC – CERamic REConstruction – process, it has traditionally taken at least two appointments to be fitted with crowns and bridges. That additional set of appointments, often separated by weeks while waiting for the crown or bridge to be manufactured, can be very inconvenient for patients who’ve already undergone extensive procedures and want to finish off their dental work.
